Payo sa lungsod

Bago ka umalis

Make reservations prior to coming.

All the best restaurants fill up quickly. They are also small for a tourist destination.
Ang dapat iempake

Pack warm clothes

For those who are not from Cali, it gets cold in the evenings, because the coastal fog sets in. Bring a jacket, close toe shoes, socks and a sweatshirt for beach.

Make Reservations for the Monterey Bay Aquarium

This is probably one of the best aquarium's in the world. Lot's for kids to do and interact with but you need reservations.

Dennis the Menace Park in Monterey

Great place for kids to get some energy out. It's been around since I was a kid and there are paddle boats you can rent
Paano makapaglibot

Walk when possible

Carmel has limited parking, so walk if possible.

Its touristy, but it's so beautiful.

They have amazingly large firepit, and face the setting sun. To top it off, they have a bagpipe player

There is no need for AC 99% of time

It is very cool at night, so AC is not present in most places
